The Taylor Creek Fly Shop, celebrating its 44th year in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado, is located less than 30 minutes from Aspen. Situated on the bank of the renowned Fryingpan River in Basalt, we are western Colorado's oldest and friendliest guide service and specialty fly shop. From the Fryingpan, Roaring Fork, Colorado and Crystal Rivers you can enjoy the best fly fishing Colorado offers all within the Roaring Fork Valley. We hope you stop by for detailed and helpful information, or join our knowledgeable staff for a day on the water.
We are very fortunate to have many different and varied fishing options within a short drive from our store in Basalt. One can experience everything from small and intimate high country streams filled with brookies and cutthroats to the hard-charging rainbows and browns on the huge brawling runs of the lower Colorado.
Our experienced guides make their selection of water based on angler preference, level of experience, water conditions, and current hatches. Guide wade trips are taken on all local waters and guided float trips utilizing McKenzie River dories are done on the lower Roaring Fork and Colorado Rivers.
Taylor Creek Fly Shop is an equal opportunity service provider and employer. Taylor Creek Fly Shop operates under a special use permit from the USDA Forest Service, White River National Forest.
